Human Interest Story
February 15 - April 5
Human Interest Story is a timely drama about homelessness, celebrity worship and the assault on American journalism. Newspaper columnist Andy Kramer (Rob Nagle) is laid off when a corporate takeover downsizes the City Chronicle. In retaliation, Andy fabricates a letter to his column from an imaginary homeless woman named “Jane Doe” who announces she will kill herself on the 4th of July because of the heartless state of the world. When the letter goes viral, Andy is forced to hire a homeless woman (Tanya Alexander) to stand-in as the fictitious Jane. She becomes an overnight internet sensation and a national women’s movement is ignited.
